At the awarding ceremony, Wang gave the Soong Ching Ling Lifetime Achievement Pediatrics Award to Prof. Ji Xiaocheng and Prof. Chen Chunming. Nine projects were titled Soong Ching Ling Pediatric Award, and a project named “building an online platform for the transfer of critical newborns in high-altitude areas” won Soong Ching Ling Pediatric Accomplishment Award. Chairman Wang gave honor certificates to ten winners. More than 10 experts were granted Soong Ching Ling Special Achievement in Pediatrics Award, while Chinese Medical Association, Chinese Preventive Medicine Association and Chinese Medical Doctor Association presented the 10th Soong Ching Ling Pediatrics Organization Award to 28 institutions. 

At present, China’s pediatric health care resources are scarce and badly distributed. According to the White Paper on China’s Current Pediatric Health Care Resources, which was published by Chinese Medical Association in June, there are overall 135,000 general pediatricians all over China and 73 specialized children’s hospitals. Among them, 41 are in the east and the rest are in the middle or western part of China. After the two-child policy is fully implemented, the total number of children is expected to exceed 290 million in 2020, which means nearly 90,000 more pediatricians are needed. Children represent China’s future and hope, while pediatrics concerns the happiness of millions of families. Soong Ching Ling Pediatrics Award is designed to recognize and reward achievements in pediatric medical research. It is pertinent to the plan for a Healthy China 2030 and the two-child policy, and thus deserves to be promoted. 

Over the past 12 years, the Soong Ching Ling Pediatric Award has made much difference in the pediatric field. More high-level young and middle-aged medical talents are committed to this field. The award serves as a platform for them to present their achievements and exchange ideas, thereby boosting creative and innovative pediatric medical research and improving China’s maternal and child health work.

Ma Xiaowei, Deputy director and Member of the Party Leadership Group of the Department of Maternal and Child Health of the National Health and Family Planning Commission and CSCLF Vice Chairperson, Hang Yuanxiang, Standing Vice Chairman and Member of the Party Leadership Group of CSCLF and Vice Chairman and Member of the Party Leadership Group of CSCLF Jing Dunquan were also present.
